A sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna on Thursday ordered the remand of one Abubakar Mustapha for allegedly enticing and wooing a married woman.

Mustapha pleaded not guilty to the charges, which contravened Section 226 of the Kaduna State Sharia Penal Code 2002.

His plea was not taken by the court.

The judge, Mallam Musa Sa’ad, ruled that the accused be remanded in police custody pending its bail perfection.

Earlier, the complainant, Yusuf Sadi, told the court that when his wife went to her parent’s house at Kafanchan to be delivered of a baby, she refused to go back to her matrimonial home, adding that Mustapha started making advances at Nusaiba.

He said that the defendant had once called the complainant and told him that Nusaiba was no longer his wife.

“When I travelled to Kafanchan to see my wife and our baby, Mustapha called my wife to his room and I followed her.

“Upon reaching his room, he shouted at me, saying he only called my wife not me, threatening to deal with me,” he said.

Sadi pleaded with the court to intervene in the matter and compel Mustapha to stop interfering in his marriage.

He also prayed to the court to assist him in bringing back his wife to their matrimonial home.

Families Identify Church Collapse Victims in Anguish

Published

Tears and anguish characterized the atmosphere as the grieving families of 13 worshipers killed in a church collapse arrived at the Richards Bay mortuary to identify the bodies of their loved ones.

The worshipers died when a wall collapsed at the Pentecostal Holiness Church near Empangeni in northern KwaZulu-Natal last Thursday night.

The KwaZulu-Natal Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Department co-ordinated with various departments including health, home affairs and the police, to assist in speeding up the body identification process.

Six worshippers were from Ulundi, four from eSikhawini and three from Maqwakazi in uMlalazi.

Describing the collapse, Phumelele Simelane from eSikhawini said worshippers had just had their evening meal and were preparing to sleep when the wall caved in.

Simelane was with her 6-year-old son, who is recovering in hospital. She said she came to the mortuary to support congregants whose relatives died.

The Mthembu family, who lost grandmother Thembi Mthabela, 54, and Andiswa Mthembu, 10, in the tragedy were overcome with grief.

“Thembi loved going to church and she always took Andiswa with her. Andiswa was doing Grade 3 at Nyathini Primary School. As a family, we are very traumatised and it is hard for us,” said a relative, who did not wanted to be named.

Buhle Mzila, whose sister Samke, 33, died, said the family had lost a breadwinner.

Samke, who worked at the Ulundi Municipality, was with her 9-year-old daughter during the incident.

Buhle said her niece, who was in hospital, was in a state of shock about her mother’s death.

“Samke loved the church, she always made sure she attended every service. She played a big role in terms of assisting the family. We are still going to feel her absence,” said Buhle.

A sobbing Mbongeni Langa said his mother had died in a “place she loved”.

The memorial service will be held tomorrow
